edge, religion and the 2012 election. take a look at the candidates' belief and how religion can impact the vote on tuesday. >>> we're tracking the weather for election day. will it be stormy in parts of the u.s.? we're watching the news edge you decide 2012. we'll be right back. ight back. . >>> the subject hasn't been talked about much. can you thank the candidates themselves. >> it was always the case for the men running for president. religion and talkers tonight. >> reporter: they barely mention it now. before they became the nominees, the respect of the political parties, barack obama and mitt romney were more talkative about the ideas on religion. we're getting another taste to it now in two old videos that are trending on the internet. first off, mitt romney appeared on a television show in 2007 when he first ran for president. romney in this video, developed an emotional defense of his mormon faith over the discussion of abortion, taking issue with the host bringing up romney's faith. >> i don't like coming on the air and having you direct my church. >> i'm not going after you
there and i would also add these voters some of them are voting because of religion and a half irish catholic family members who are economic populist but will never vote for a pro-choice democrat they never will. i wish that were not true but i don't think that we can minimize the extent to which that is a sincere belief of the economic interests and finally i said this and it's really amazing that these red state people are the welfare queens now frankly the most of federal dollars but i think they are people now who are taking food stamps and if they wish they were not and kind of blame obama were the government, and i think we have to accept that and think about how to talk about it differently rather than saying they're crazy and voting against their self-interest. estimate your listening to the commonwealth club review program. our guest is salam notte, editor and msnbc analyst joan walsh discussing her book what's the matter with white people why we long for iggulden age that never was. you brought up religion. religion does not enter in political discussion in europe even though they
for religion. so block women's basic health at the same time you provide public funding for religion. this is going on at the state and federal level. and my only concern is that people will not wake up to it soon enough. but i think women are wakie ini and this is why we're going to win. >> it's been 72 hours since the mourdock story has been unearthed nationally. do you see a change? do you see this really affecting this election? do you really see that women are waking up to this agenda? >> i can tell you that we have volunteers in swing states like virginia and ohio and wisconsin and what i'm seeing is more energy. more energy on our side. more people calling and saying we want to get on the phones with you and go door to door with your activists. i am seeing that. >> terri o'neill, great to have you with us tonight. i appreciate your time. >>> coming up, conservatives are clutching their pearls over an obama campaign ad that recycles a joke made by one of their idols over 30 years ago. stay tuned. today, jason is he to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain
out there are typically democratic blue-collar working-class men and women, roman catholic in religion -- certainly not all of them, and pro-union. these were the quintessential reagan democrats. they were in counties adjacent to pittsburgh like beaver and westmorland and washington and corrine and further to the east -- kim-shree and fayette. those counties have a propensity to vote republican, particularly in the elections. they are culturally conservative, pro-gun, pro-life, not particularly fond of gay- rights. then think of pennsylvania, draw a big t up the center of the state, fanned out across the new york border, not quite getting to erie or the northeastern part of the state, the big t -- that is the conservative area of the state. basically white, protestant, does not have a definable ethnic group in particular. once you get east of the susquehanna river, with the exception of a few counties, the demography changed sharply. let's get down to southeast -- philadelphia, heavily democratic -- democratic, but the suburban counties, and montgomery, chester, delaware, the swing tow
religions that are completely welcoming of marriages. episs copal church is a very good example. so what we're talking about here is really the granting of a marriage license by a civil institution. going down to city hall and getting your civil marriage license. while i completely understand and honor the caller's concept of not wanting to judge and wanting to treat all equally, at the end of the day the only way that we achieve that is by offering all americans equal protection under the law. and really only a civil marriage license when it comes to the recognition of our families provides that. so it is important to hold on to the concept of wanting to protect all americans. and i would continue to engage with the caller and really kind of all thoughtful fair-minded people that are on this journey. but what i would offer is that if we really are true to the concept of equality in this country and really wanting to treat all americans equally, and there's a thoughtful conversation of the issues at play and we don't want second class institutions for some and kind of different treatment, i
of politics and religion. you would be wrong. i'd like you to take a listen to this, please. >> and remember when obama forced christian organizations to provide insurance coverage that was contrary to their religious beliefs? that's the real barack obama. that's the real threat to our religious freedom. >> jonathan, i'm sorry, once again to pick up on another robo lie by romney. but i thought the president allowed for exceptions for religious organizations in relation to the provision of contraception. is that not correct? >> yes, that is correct. >> and yet the robo says the exact opposite. >> and yet you are shocked and surprised and probably horrified that the robo call for governor romney is repeating a lie that has been knocked down. is it controversial thing that's happened with -- with what the president did, sure. but the question is settled. we've seen this with the health exemption. we've seen it with welfare. we've seen it with the jeep ad. we've seen it time and time again with governor romney's campaign. they are -- they said during the republican convention one of the seniored
to it. i think that relation, not just the catholic church, but faith and religion are misrepresented in the major media. first of all, you can present your own opinion on fact, as fact, because why? as long as you're talking about religion, religion is totally subjective and the not based on any truth, no matter what you say, it's okay. what's an example of that? this last week, bill collar of the new york times wrote an article how to die, it was all about end of life care. the suggestions he made was that the reason we're not able to, as a society, get to a point in which our loved ones can die peacefully is because the catholic church would never allow such practices to occur. meaning what? a suggestion that the catholic church would require a family member to go to extreme means to keep somebody who is dying alive. it's simply not the truth. but, nobody stands up to it because you know what? as long as you're talking about religion, as long as you can offer any opinion you want and pass it as fact because religion itself is purely subjective. >> clayton: what about during the vic
, grover norquist, can't touch revenues, the neocons, the religion right. does he have to check back because he doesn't have a personal core? >> right. and so, you know, if they won't buy it in brown, let's make it in blue. that sort of business mindset i think he brings to everything he does. and so, you know, they wanted severely conservative rhetoric during the primary, so he gave it to them. now he thinks they want different rhetoric. >> campaigning in ohio vice president biden pointed out as romney plays up his bipartisanship, he may find his biggest headaches come from his own party. as i was suggesting. let's listen. >> ask them the question, when have you ever seen governor romney take on the establishment of his party? what do you think prospects are that governor romney would attempt to do any of the things he now says he supports? what do you think the chances of him doing that with the republican-controlled congress? what do you think the chances are he's going to tell the people, you know, you're dead wrong. that's basically what he's saying now. >> grover norquist is th
a mormon. well, this country was founded on different relidges relidgens and mormon is a christian religion. so would people rather have a muslim -- host: the spt not a muslim and i think you know that. but let's talk about the subject of religion north carolina being a big state on the bible belt and what's the feeling as far as you've been able to see regarding governor romney and his mormonism in north carolina? guest: first of all, i would just like to say that i agree with nancy to the extent that this country was founded on religious freedom so i do not think that someone's religion could come into the conversation in a negative manner. and as you stated president obama is a christian and not a muslim so that's something that needs to be made clear. it just happens to be that he's a christian and that's what he is. but that's a conversation that we should not get into the weeds on when that's not supposed the crux of our election when we are a country that was founded on our religious freedom host: our next caller is from william. caller: how are you doing? guest: well. how are you? c
to be built in their state. host: she brought up religion, so let's talk about the role of churches, parishes, synagogues can play in the campaign and whether they are allowed to contribute. guest: they're not criminals not contributing directly to the campaigns, just like a corporation could not contribute. so we're not seeing money come directly from religious organizations. but certainly people's beliefs, people's attitudes toward important political issues are sometimes if shaped by their religious beliefs. and they have been important to populations -- they have been important population, people you can rely on in the election, since they are older and have certain religious beliefs. but they cannot play a financial goal. host: john is a democrat. caller: i just wanted to say that bush, romney, and the republicans have set up this tax structure which helps these companies take our jobs overseas for cheaper labor. and the internet will also suck up a lot of jobs in the coming future. you can have a job almost anywhere, so all the tax money but being received, i believe, is going to go to
him. >> bill: religion crew. >> disparagement. joe the plumber doesn't. he doesn't have a pickup truck. there seems to be a real dissociation between him and the hoypaloy. >> bill: do you think it has to do with grievance. in some african-americans african-american communities there are grievants to whites that aren't pathetic to their cause. that might be driving a little bit of it. there are some african-americans who believe that the reason they are not prospering as a community, all right. is because society hasn't done enough and the reason it hasn't done enough is because of rich white guys? >> no. i don't think of it like that with obama. i think of him as one was those swells who looks down at people aren't up to speed intellectually with him. i don't get a color thing off of him. i know that crowd: they sit around and they, you know, they have jack henry abbot and norman there. >> and canopies? >> and all that stuff. >> bill: you have ever had a canopy at your house? i don't even know what a canopy is. >> the thing you put over the picnic table when you have burgers. you put
to bordeaux and saying to people, 'i've got a great new religion for you and, by the way, give up your wine.' >> the task, to put on a suit and tie, and climb on your bicycle -- >> the tried and true and well worn method was knocking on doors. and so we knocked on thousands and thousands and thousands of doors. >> the mormon mission does teach you to deal with rejection. most people are not thrilled to see a pair of mormon missionaries on their door. >> and it means cultivating your own inner spiritual life. where else are you going to get the resources and the strength to carry on this difficult work unless you feel like god is with you? >> then a life changing moment. >> mitt romney is driving. they are coming around a curve in this small remote town. there are six people in the car. >> he went around the bend and he saw that there was a, at a high rate of speed, another person coming right towards him. >> one of the policemen who had shown up as the first responder, if you will, had actually written in his passport 'il est mort,' which means 'he is dead.' >> mitt woke up in a ward, and h
can visit someone in the hospital regardless of your religion or no religion, regardless of who you do or do not sleep with, right, we're talking about the right to be with a loved one, not a gay right to be with a loved one. so that is so important because that's where we're headed because young people already see it that way. it's only older people that you have to get on this thing that it's not about marriage. so i do think it's shifting. i agree that you see the political energy in the democratic party with governor cuomo, as well. i don't think, though, as a legal matter that she they should be on ballots at all. >> again, california has ending the death penalty on there, changing the three strikes law.. >> again, california has ending the death penalty on there, changing the three strikes law.. >> again, california has ending the death penalty on there, changing the three strikes law. things that i as a progressive would be generally supportive of, and yet my concern is when at the show up on ballot measures rather than showing up in our state legislature as did doing the work o
insurance, a federally mandated program. now it's more like 14%. after irene, people got religion but a lot of people don't have flood insurance f you're flooded out, you're flooded out. >> and fema may not be able to pay for the flood insurance. >> there's always a dance between fema, governors, insurance companies and homeowners who are stuck right now. >> that's not a story that's going away. >> other stories that are making news, john berman has that. >> thank you, soledad. >>> in northern new jersey, oil facility has leaked 336,000 gallons of fuel along the tidal waterway that separates staten island from new jersey. new york city police officer is one of the victims of hurricane sandy. 28-year-old went to check on the water in his basement monday night in the southeast section of staten island and never returned. his body was found the next day. >>> a live look at the crane that has become a major new york city tourist traction 90 stories above midtown. it is no longer dangling this morning after crews secured the boom to the high rise it is attached to. but streets surrounding it are
whether they get to eat. religion is banned. there is no rule of law, and perceived political infractions are met with harsh punishment, punishment, i should add, that is often needed out to the three generations of a person's family , and political offenders knows that when he goes to present his parents and his children will probably go with him. there are probably about 200,000 north koreans today in the gulag, and more than a million, perhaps as high as 2 million have already died there. the reason we know all of this and much, much more is thanks to the testimonies of north koreans to have escaped. these are the people i write about in my book. this knowledge comes to us despite the best efforts of the family regime to keep it secret. for more than 50 years, ever since the end of the korean war, north korea has been sealed off from the world's eyes. the family regime has pursued an isolationist policy and it maintains an iron grip on information, access to which is very strictly controlled. to give just one example, every radio must be registered with the government, and its style mu

i understand that. we are getting phone calls in iowa. the issue of romney's religion is an issue i raised with him when he ran a pull your years ago and its initial history sensitive about man does not like to talk about. iowa republicans are dominated by evangelical christians. they are a bit leery of mormons. they don't understand it it. they don't like to talk about it. no one will say i am not excited about mitt romney because he's a mormon, but they are aware of it. so that is an issue. it goes more to not whether someone will support mitt romney or not support mitt romney but the enthusiasm level they will bring to the campaign. that diminishes it just a bit. so that's an issue. if you look at how the campaign plays out, i think that will be one of the major deciding factors in this election, which i think is very close. and that is the enthusiasm level that each candidate can bring to the game. can mitt romney excite republican -- the republican base, which is largely evangelical christians in iowa? kendra obama excite the democratic base? barack obama excite the democratic

for their birth control? it is against my faith. i have the freedom of religion and plan to exercise that by voting for romney. host: kathy sullivan. guest: in the first place, no one is proposing that taxpayers pay for someone's birth control. the issue is whether or not the employer has the right to discriminate against certain types of prescriptions, specifically birth control. this is a law we have had in new hampshire for several years now that employers have to cover prescription contraceptive. it has worked quite well. it has nothing to do with the tax payer. it is the expense of the employer, not the taxpayer. with respect to the health-care issue, i have to tell you something, i am the managing partner of a law firm. we have about 50 people who work there. up until couple of years ago, our health and -- health insurance premiums went up by double-digit numbers. for years. last year our health care premiums will have gone up by only 3% total for two years, which is unheard of several years ago. we kept looking at the double- digit percentage increases. i am very happy with wh
